, so misleading that chrysler and gm executives themselves are pushing back. people expect politicians to trim the truth a bit, but it's possible that mitt romney has just a crossed a line that not even the most uninformed voters will accept, that jeep is moving to china. and look who's back, joe isuzu, speaking of dishonest, this time campaigning, kind of, for mitt romney. >> i'm joe isuzu. guys, vote for mitt romney and you'll get a free binder full of women, you have my word on it! >> in case you missed that, it's a spoof, sort of, and it's in the side show. joe isuzu is back. finally, let me finish with the best way to fight people who play racial politics -- get out there and vote. this is "hardball," the place for politics. jaw drop? campbell's has 24 new soups that will make it drop over, and over again. ♪ from jammin' jerk chicken, to creamy gouda bisque. see what's new from campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. see what's new from campbell's. if we want to improve our schools... ... what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can he
at this romney campaign ad slamming president obama. >> obama took a gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who were going to build jeeps and china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. gerri: and the left out swinging today claiming the ad is inaccurate, including joe biden who called it flagrantly dishonest. my next guest says romney has it right. here to explain, associate fellow for the national legal and policy center. great to have you back. always a pleasure to have you on the show. this all came out of a report in bloomberg. let me read you what the road and read your response. european sales, the ceos, sergio marchini, considering building chrysler models in italy, including jeeps, for export to north america. now, is that true or is that false? >> that is absolutely true, and prior to that there was a bloomberg report that did say that the yacht was going to be building jeeps in china, possibly old jeeps, so that is where the governor romney got that information. now, there was one slight inaccuracies under the romney and where he said the obama admi
took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. >> to quote bill clinton, that takes brass. but that ad got four pinocchios from washington post, got pats on fire from politico. so obviously he stopped, right? wrong. he's now buying ohio ads in the ohio city home of the jeep plant. >> now come words that chrysler plans to start making jeeps in, you guessed it, china. what happened to the promises made to autoworkers in toledo and throughout ohio? the same hard working men and went who were told obama's auto bailout would help them? >> today chrysler's ceo sent a letter to employees saying, i feel obliged to unambiguously restate our position. jeep productions will not be moved from the united states to chi china. it is inaccurate to suggest anything different. inaccurate is a kind way of putting it. when corrected time and time again, governor romney has walked away from the truth. he hasn't fibbed, he hasn't mud idea the facts. he lied. and it's a lie he is selling to the people of ohio. it's desperate behavior from a de
any idea what was happening. all of us in the auto industry were looking at gm and chrysler. we sought to companies on the verge of failure that were going to take down the entire supplier industry. we also saw an industry that had to be restructured. bill ford is my hero. he fired in self. they put forward in a good place, so they did not have to be rescued. they laid out a map for what had to be done, and everybody had to sacrifice. neil: and the end justifies it because things are back. and is starting with president bush. i'm not criticizing, but it did not lead to a slippery slope. >> once again, the difference between this was, this was not a bailout. a bailout is when you give money to the existing guys. restructuring. the key thing that obama did -- neil: the, the bankruptcy and restructuring. >> but the restructuring was driven by the president's team. a bankruptcy court would never have done that by itself, and it is the reason i don't like the mitt romney passive approach, just turn it over to the courts. it would not have moved fast enough. it would not have taken the actio
have gm and chrysler, their chief furious over this line of attack centered around the auto industry. i want to play what the president said today regarding the auto ads from the romney campaign. >> you have folks that work at the jeep plant who have been calling their employers worried, asking, is it true? are our jobs being shipped to china? the reason they make these calls is because governor romney is running an ad that says so. except it's not true. everybody knows it's not true. >> and anne, in addition to not being truce, you see people in ohio taking it as cynical. they make people believe it's bad and horrible and somebody in china is about to take your job. >> that's the real risk for governor romney in running an ad like this, although obviously he had his reasons for doing so. the campaign obviously seeing ohio as does everyone as being it is lynchpin to be elected. anything he could do, if there are voters who are all right feeling skeptical of the auto bailout who might buy this, that's who this is targeted at. this is a fairly significant backlash, questioning of the fact
worst. and chrysler's ceo said it's simply not true. we know the truth, mitt. >> that's exactly what i said. the headline you read which is let detroit go bankrupt. >> when romney airs these grossly false ads, it opens up the door obviously for the obama campaign to hit back hard. in the state of florida it actually gets worse. romney desperately needs to win the state of florida and he is running a spanish language ad meant to stoke the fears of cuban-americans. the ad tries to connect president obama to venezuelan president hugo chavez and fidel castro. "the miami herald" reports the romney campaign would not furnish the ad despite repeated requests. in other words, the ad is so outrageous, the romney campaign tried to slip it under the radar. obviously the strategy is backfiring. let's turn to annette taddeo, member of the miami-dade democratic party. annette, great to have you with us tonight. i keep saying the bread basket to victory for president obama is going to be south florida. turnout is to important. but now this spanish language ad that's out, what is this doing to stroke
of general motors and chrysler which in all likelihood would have been liquidated had his administration not kept them above water with a government-led rescue in 2009 is pretty popular in ohio. popularity is an obstacle to mitt romney who opposed a key part of the rescue when initiated by the bush administration and now finds himself with a stubborn polling deficit in a state he more or less has to win to win the presidency. so, the romney campaign has e a escalated their attempts to rewrite the history of the auto rescue and are now simply making things up about the current auto industry that exists today. they claim that president obama sold chrysler to italians who plan to build jeeps in china. >> who will do more for the auto industry? not barack obama, fact checkers confirm his attacks on mitt romney are false. the truth? mitt romney has a plan to help the auto industry. he's supported by lee iacocca and "the detroit news." obama took gm into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. >> i'm mitt r
fiction that the president is moving the production of chrysler jeeps to china. something chrysler itself has denied. still, as you'd expect, the advert keeps running. joining us now is brad woodhouse communications director for the democratic national committee. brad, good afternoon to you. >> hi, martin. sw >> even the chrysler spokesman said a professional acrobat couldn't achieve the misrepresentation of the truth that mr. romney achieved. >> this is incredible. there's no surer sign that mitt romney is behind in this race, that he's behind in ohio, and that he's heading towards a loss in this race than the fact of this ad. it is such a blatant lie, it is such a blatant falsehood. someone who was in a stronger position politically wouldn't take this type of risk. he's never recovered -- go ahead. >> doesn't this ad prove that the romney campaign is basically predicated on fearmonger and lying given that nothing they say about the jeep production is true? >> well, nothing of it is true. they have -- their whole campaign has been predicated upon fearmongering. they have lied about the s
of the -- the ceos of chrysler and gm had to come out and say you're lie being us and you're going to hurt our sales with your lies. he's not really keeping up with business there, but i have to tell you also, earlier this week he got subsumed by the sandy coverage as it should have, but i put out a story with another videotape in which mitt romney talking to a fund-raiser earlier this year says, you know, there's a better business environment in china than the united states. well, why is that? it's because they have no worker protections, no environmental -- >> they have no human rights, david. >> and low wages. so is he saying he wants to bring us back to that point? like to the days of cal coolidge as joy suggests? >> david, yes. >> there's a lot going on that doesn't compute and when it does compute it's rather scary. >> there's something called the moonlight magnolia theory of economics. the south practices it right now. when you strip away unions and you can lower wages, businesses are more profitable. that's why wall street -- you see the stock market tick up when companies lay people off bec
's lie that chrysler is moving american jobs to china. >> you've got to own what you say. this isn't a game. these are people's jobs at stake. these are people's lives. companies like g.m. and chrysler, they put a lot of time and effort and money into building up their brand and letting americans know that the american auto industry is back. and we don't want suddenly a bunch of ads saying stuff that's not true. you don't scare hard working americans just to scare up some votes. you know i tell the truth. and you know i fight for working families every single day as hard as i know how. >> president obama concluded his speech this way. >> and that's why i need you, ohio. to make sure that no matter who you are or what you look like or where you come from, what your last night is, where you started, no matter what, you can make it in america if you try. that's why i'm asking for your vote and if you're willing to work with me and knock on some doors with me and make some phone calls with me and turn out to the polls with me. we'll win this election. we'll win ohio. >> new polls show
economic news can have undesirable consequences. this week chrysler will add 1100 workers in detroit. the plant hassed a workers on overtime for months, is now adding a third crew so they can be operational for more hours in the day. it's hard to imagine these new jobs without chrysler and chrysler without the auto rescue. but because the new vehicles, these workers will be making our suvs, so while the comeback is good in the short term, it's only good on for all of us in the long time if the industry goes through a revolution that dramatically increases the efficiency and reduces the emissions of the cars it produces. want to find out what my guests think you should know for the coming week -- >> i think one of the things that a we've been discussing has been there's more drips out of the benghazi situation. there was a cia annex he is that asked for military intervention and were denied three times. unclear whether it was the pentagon, the president. who those. but i think we'll see more drips from that next week and that will continue to hit the headlines. >> we've covered bengha
, particularly with this issue of jeep and chrysler, getting money in the auto bailout and supposedly transferring manufacturing, having intention to transfer manufacturing to china. that is not playing well in ohio. >> let's talk about how the polls are playing in ohio. it's not possible to overstate the importance of ohio in determining who is going to win tuesday. no republican has ever won the presidency without taking a state. let's take a look at very latest data. a cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows president obama with a three-point lead, but that's still inside the margin of error. this is a dead heat. that's why we call them swing states. a separate nbc news/"wall street journal"/marist poll shows a wired margin for the president, a six-point lead. john, do one of these guys have the clear momentum heading into tuesday, or is it still just absolutely up for grabs? >> well, christine, let's put all the partisan spin aside because there's a lot of that going on in the final days and hours of an election. what we've seen in the polls is president obama having a small but stead
, bozo the trump tweeted out the same line, you saw what the vice president of chrysler said, donald trump, you're full of stuff. >> bob shrum, thank you for your time. still ahead, how republicans are using long lines and fewer hours to suppress the vote in florida. it's an important story with national implications. i'll talk solutions with the state's former gop governor, charlie crist. a a [ male announcer ] with 160 more miles per tank, the distances aren't getting shorter. ♪ the trucks are going farther. the new 2013 ram 1500. ♪ with the best-in-class fuel economy. engineered to move heaven and earth. ♪ guts. glory. ram. . >>> have you joined the "politicsnation" conversation on facebook yet? today folks were cheering on the jobs report. even though the gop has the brakes on, the economy is still improving and everyone loved this photo of the president on the campaign trail. as gail says, the baby whisperer at work again. susan says, babies know a good person when they see one. we have more pictures from the campaign trail on our facebook page and we want your captions fo
chrysler is going to move from jeep jobs from here to china. romney is firing back saying the way the president has managed the bailout has a failure. it's exposed taxpayers to a $25 billion loss and these companies are expanding production overseas. that's from the romney camp. they believe this could be lead to jobs being shipped overseas and they believe the ad is accurate. they believe what romney is trying do is save ohio because if he can't ring ohio, they are convinced the president will be re-elected. >> most of the analysts agree with that. four days to go, what's the mood inside the president's campaign? >> it's interesting. he unveiled a slightly new stump speech where he was fiery, and he was defiant saying if he had a second term he's not going to give into republicans on cutting taxes for the rich, major spending reductions either. take a look how he framed it. >> i am a long ways away from giving up on this fight! i got a lot of fight left in me. i don't get tired. i don't grow weary. i hope you aren't tired either, ohio. i hope you aren't tired either. >> now, as t
to the detroit news, which endorsed mitt romney your candidate, chrysler previously built jeeps in china and the move is not unusual. the ford motor company builds ford vehicles in china for chinese buyers. general motors bukes in china for local consumers. >> well, but as you point out they previously did it. what the -- what's happening now is, fiat's moved to push jeep more into china. so the ad speaks for itself. the romney campaign stands by it and believes it's accurate. >> let me ask you about one of your big concerns which is libya. you're on the oversight committee and have been working with darrell issa, of course. what about the latest charges that you have made that the defense secretary did not pursue or follow up and respond to requests for help? leon panetta has said there was no way to ascertain safely who to send in and what the situation was on the ground because the video that they were monitoring did not give them a clear picture of what was happening. >> well, that's a different answer than what the president said when the president has repeatedly said they did every
after romney' false claim of jeep outsourcing to china, chrysler itself has refuted romney's lie. >> joining me now from ohio is state senator nina turner. it's good to have you here. let's start at the very beginning with the ads from the romney campaign directed toward autoworkers there. and the latest ad, a radio ad, the governor's campaign also accuses gm of moving 15,000 american jobs to china. gmish u issued a statement. in it they say we've clearly entered some parallel universe during these last few days. no anount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will change our record. it's not just that romney is taking on the president in ohio, romney is taking on the auto industry. and how is that resonating with oh ohioans, especially the job market we know there is one of the better ones in the country. >> it is, thomas. i was listening to some of the governor's remarks and i tell you, it made me nauseous, absolutely nauseous to hear this talk about things like that. jeep is investing $500 million into that plant in toledo. they'll be hiring 1,100 more workers. the fact th
, unusual spectacle of the heads of general motors and chrysler rebutting campaign ads. >> right. >> from the romney campaign. they can say the first ad at least was literally true in the careful way it was wording, but it still got a pants on fire for being inaccurate. the general impact of that advertisement certainly was suggesting that jobs were going to be literally moved from ohio, jeep jobs, to china and that was not -- >> which the company denies. i've talked to obama advisors this morning who say, a, that would be a much bigger story, if not for the sandy coverage and that would be quite detrimental to the romney campaign. b, they wouldn't be running those ads in the first place if they didn't feel they were coming from behind there. there's no question the auto issue is important. interviewing governor kasic on "meet the press" said i would never side with somebody who wasn't a strong auto guy and didn't believe in supporting the companies. i think they understand that it's been an uphill climb in ohio. the romney campaign does. they like to think they're a lot closer here, but
versus the u.s. already got chrysler this morning, 10% versus an estimate of 13. dodge up 20, ram up 15. jim, the numbers, they have been good all year, but they haven't been as good in the second half of the year. >> sandy cutler from eaton commented and he still thinks auto motive is very strong. ford, chrysler has done a remarkable job, japan, the japanese company now american companies doing incredibly well. it remains a strong part of the u.s. economy. >> stock the next 1% loop. >> the autos are a real bright spot. i like that gm call yesterday. in technology, we did have a couple of deals. they're merging it with a software company. but it's a pretty nice premium. you always like to see a 30-plus premium after all. >> they have some accounting issues. >> forget it if that's the case. if you say it, i believe it. we should also appoint bmc in the software area.$750 million going to buy back really quickly. by the end of the year, bmc has a lot of activists in that name. it was thought that you actually get a deal. i have spoken with a couple of them near the end of the year. you've
romney's campaign put out in which he suggests chrysler has sold jeeps to the italians and now want to start selling in china. the obama administration says, whoa, we're not moving jobs to china, governor romney's saying, yes, but for every job created in china, that's a job not created here in the united states. president obama firmly on this tack of governor romney has got a big problem in ohio with voters here. here's what he said. >> i understand that governor romney's had a tough time here in ohio because he was against saving the auto industry, and it's hard to run away from that position when you're on videotape saying the words let detroit go bankrupt. [cheers and applause] but i know, you know, we're close to an election. but this isn't a game. >> reporter: you know, one thing to consider when we're looking at voters here in ohio going forward between now and tuesday is the evangelical vote. i talked to raffle -- ralph reid who said in 2008 evangelicals made up 30% of the vote here in ohio, 340,000 of them stayed home. he says if we can get a good number of those evangelica
, recent one on auto bail yet which the chrysler selling jeep to the italians who want to start producing jeep ins china. obama administration saying absolutely not true they're shipping jobs overseas. the romney campaign saying it is true they want to start producing jeeps in china and every job created in china is not a job created here in the united states. so the campaign trail governor romney will continue to pure the message of change versus the status quo, saying under his administration real change starts on day one and mocking the president for wanting to create jobs by creating a department of business headed up by a secretary of business. >> i don't happen to think that put being in a new chair in the cabinet room will bring new jobs to the people of america. so we've got a plan instead to do that. [applause] you see, i don't think that what we need is another government bureaucrat that supposedly knows something about job creation. i think it would be helpful to have a president who actually understands job creation. [cheers and applause] >> reporter: that is romney's purchase
